Solid print that page


The branch of physics that deals with solids is called solid -state physics , and is the main branch of condensed matter physics (which also includes liquids). Materials science is primarily concerned with the physical and chemical properties of solids. Solid -state chemistry is especially

Archimedean solid print that page


In geometry an Archimedean solid is a highly symmetric, semi-regular convex polyhedron composed of two or more types of regular polygons meeting in identical vertices . They are distinct from the Platonic solids , which are composed of only one type of polygon meeting in identical vertices

Solid-fuel rocket print that page


A solid rocket or a solid -fuel rocket is a rocket with a motor that uses solid propellants ( fuel / oxidizer ). The earliest rockets were solid -fuel rockets powered by gunpowder ; they were used by the Chinese in warfare as early as the 13th century and later by the Mongols , Arabs

Amorphous solid print that page

In condensed matter physics , an amorphous (from the greek a , without, morphé , shape, form) or non-crystalline solid is a solid that lacks the long-range order characteristic of a crystal . In part of the older literature, the term has been used synonymously with glass . Nowadays | 2011/7/13 10:20:41

Platonic solid print that page


In geometry , a Platonic solid is a convex polyhedron that is regular , in the sense of a regular polygon . Specifically, the faces of a Platonic solid are congruent regular polygons, with the same number of faces meeting at each vertex ; thus, all its edges are congruent, as are its

Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Booster print that page


The Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Boosters (SRBs) were the pair of large solid rockets used by the United States' NASA Space Shuttle during the first two minutes of powered flight. Together they provided about 83% of liftoff thrust for the Space Shuttle. They were located on either side of

Johnson solid print that page

In geometry , a Johnson solid is a strictly convex polyhedron , each face of which is a regular polygon , but which is not uniform , i.e., not a Platonic solid , Archimedean solid , prism or antiprism . There is no requirement that each face must be the same polygon, or that the same | 2011/6/8 20:45:20

Solid body print that page

A solid -body instrument is a string instrument such as a guitar , bass or violin built without its normal sound box and relying on an electric pickup system to directly receive the vibrations of the strings. Solid -body instruments are preferred in situations where acoustic feedback | 2011/9/26 21:38:57
